Hopi Hari
country: Brazil, South America

Brazilians don't speak English, but they are wonderful. Hopi Hari is the usual, uninspired medley of Wild West towns, Superhero lands, Mummies, Main Streets, and junk food. It's a park that could be situated in any medium-sized US state – that little Latin America went into it. However, as opposed to the fate it'd probably encounter in the US, this park is PACKED. 2.5 hour queues to oldish wooden roller coasters and midget flume rides support the conclusion that...

Parque Rodo

Visited 2014. Funfair/public park in a state of advanced abandonment. Not even Soviet-era fairgrounds look that run down. All rides were closed on my Friday afternoon visit, but some appeared as if they open sometimes. Maybe...

Republica de los Ninos

Visited 2014. A 1.5-hour bus ride from Buenos Aires, La República de los Niños is a bit difficult to reach. The park opened in 1951, 4 years ahead of Disneyland, and allegedly inspired Walt Disney, who visited in 1950, for his Main Street. In fact, the resemblances are staggering. Take República's entrance/Main Street and put Germany's Neuschwanstein Castle at the end, and you've almost got Disneyland. What's even more staggering is that Disney's 1955...

La Granja Villa Sur

Visited 2014. Superbly complements its smaller sibling Granja Villa Norte: more space, more animal exhibits and a couple of water rides. Highlight: an enclosed tube water slide on which you slide with your clothes on. You can imagine what happens...

La Granja Villa Norte

Visited 2014. My favorite of the three parks in the vicinity of drab, dry, smoggy Lima. A combination of zoo, garden and theme park. Small, but superbly landscaped, Granja Villa Norte looks and feels as if a piece of Singapore has landed in Tunisia...

Rancho Aventura Park

Visited 2014. Compared to the two Granja Villa parks in Lima, a rather uninspired standard amusement park with a range of rides and an oversized food court...

Vulqano Park

Visited 2014. Depressing, unkempt amusement park whose best feature is its location on a mountain overlooking Quito, the soulful capital city of Ecuador...

Mundo Aventura

Visited 2014. Here's the average theme park whose unique selling proposition is the absence of a competitor. Plenty of rides, wet and dry, colorful buildings, animals, burgers and ice cream, mixed with whatever and I-have-seen-that-elsewhere...

Salitre Magico

Visited 2014. Resembles more a funfair than its landscaped theme park competitor Mundo Aventura. Shows its age, but has more coasters, a charming 'sea monster' attraction and a walk-through ghost house that's really scary and up to world standards...
